List of Space Centers in India

India’s experience in rocketry began in ancient times when fireworks were first used in the country, a technology invented in neighboring China, and which had an extensive two-way exchange of ideas and goods with India, connected by the Silk Road. Military use of rockets by Tipu Sultan during the Mysore War against the British inspired William Congreve to invent the Congreve rocket, the predecessor of modern artillery rockets, in 1804. After India gained independence from British occupation in 1947, Indian scientists and politicians recognized the potential technology in both defense applications, and for research and development. Recognizing that a country as demographically large as India would require its own independent space capabilities, and by recognizing the early potential of satellites in the fields of remote sensing and communication, these visionaries set about establishing a space research organization. And if look today there are many space centers in India which are working on paramount projects.

If you are preparing for any competitive exam like UPSC/IAS, SBI PO, RBI Grade B, SSC, IBPS, NIACL, BOB PO, NICL AO, Dena Bank, BOI SO then you should have the good knowledge in these topics.
